Eli is after Vanessa Williams on The Good Wife — but not like that... yet.

The Ugly Betty alum makes her debut on Sunday's episode as Courtney Paige, a wealthy potential donor and future love interest for Eli (Alan Cumming), who will stop at nothing to get her dough for Peter's campaign. That includes making Peter (Chris Noth) temporarily move back in with Alicia (Julianna Margulies) so Courtney can come over for a (fake) birthday party for Grace (Mackenzie Vega) and witness the happy family.

It's all going according to plan until Jackie (Mary Beth Peil) and Howard (Jerry Adler) show up to announce their engagement and make some, let's say, unpolished remarks. Is Courtney impressed by the Florricks or Eli? Will she back Peter? He'll be surprised by at least one of her answers.

The Good Wife airs Sundays at 9/8c on CBS.
